    A voice from space?

    When the alien like voice talks to me it shows it’s self as a image in my mind as it converses with me so while it talks it shows human like body and facial expressions while it moves it’s mouth as it talks to me. While it asks me questions it will show me examples of what it’s asking me about...

    Anyone ever think they can hear peoples thoughts?

    Hey, I have schizophrenia. At a time before I was diagnosed, I used to lay down, and I'd be really h*rny, so I would try to talk to people around my development, through my mind. .. And its one of those things like the more imaginative you are and want it to work the more it works. I thought...

    Is it normal to live your whole life thru a shadow of imagination? I mean all the time in my life I am imagining things like I get lost in my own little world a lot. When I am speaking with someone there is always a second conversation going on in my head or after I stop speaking with someone...

    Terrified if I'm attracted to my mother, or if it's just OCD

    I'm taking this medication (MAOI) called Nardil which affects your libido. It's been hard to masturbate. I've had urges, but I can't release. Sometimes I'm at my computer for 5 hours. This morning, I had another session which lasted 3 hours. At the end, I started thinking of my mother when she...

    I sometimes get flashbacks of traumatic events. I know what the triggers are. However, I sometimes get taken by surprise. This can be in any place. At home or out and about. When this happens it takes over my mind and leaves me unable to continue. I should of put this in my ESA50 form that I...

    Being treated differently because of you label

    Does any else feel the undertones of condescension from others who know you have a mental illness? I find this a lot, but I am interested to know if this is experienced more widely? Health professionals I have found are the worst. They read your mental health history, and form an understanding...
